SUMMARY

Wolfe and Montcalm is the behind-the-scenes story of the two generals, Wolfe and Montcalm who unknowingly changed the fate of a continent. With hindsight, one could say that the battle of the Plains of Abraham might have ended differently. Wolfe was lucky and took some risks; Montcalm didn't have the supoport of all his troops, (some militia units were held at Beauport by Governor Vaudreuil). Under different conditions, the French might have won. Th generals remain dim figures to us. However, they were real men, with real problems. They were ambitious, courageous men (Wolfe was 31 and Montcalm, 47) but their attitudes toward war, for instance, was very different. Wolfe was eager and blooodthirsty, Montcalm had been wounded six times and was now cool. We do know Wolfe drank very little wine and ate little food. Montcalm loved wine and imported treats for himself. Both were passionate about the women they loved; neither was fond of gambling, though it was a current past-time. After researching letters and journals and reading dozens of books, I was fascinated by them both and the times in which they lived. Perhaps Wolfe and Montcalm will come alive for the reader, as they have for me.Carroll, Joy is the author of 'Wolfe & Montcalm Their Lives, Their Times, And The Fate Of A Continent', published 2004 under ISBN 9781552979051 and ISBN 1552979059.
